AFP – Germany authorities have said they will not prevent the neo-Nazi NPD party from distributing CDs outside schools with interviews and music by members of its party, a report said Saturday.

The youth protection office said the disc by the National Democratic Party of Germany, the country’s most radical far-right party which touts an anti-immigrant agenda, just contained political opinions, the report in the Suddeutsche Zeitung said.

The office therefore found no basis on which to ban the disc, the report quoted director Elke Monsen-Engberding as saying.

According to the NPD the original demand to ban the distribution of the CDs came from the north east state of Lower Saxony.

On its website, the NPD welcomed the decision.

The party could “continue to try to transmit its ideas to young people, schoolchildren and first-time voters”, NPD member Claus Cremer said.

NPD legal affairs minister Frank Schwerdt, who has served two prison sentences for inciting racial hatred and distributing Nazi propaganda, also appeared on the website celebrating the decision.

In November last year, German authorities banned the sale of homegrown hard rock group Rammstein’s new album to fans under 18, for what it deemed explicit sadomasochist lyrics.
